The short answer to this question is yes! If you want to give your dog a bit of a peach, then you can do so without worrying about harming their health.
The longer answer though is that you should be careful not to give your dog too many peaches, as they can cause stomach upsets and other issues in the long term.
The biggest risk with giving dogs peaches is that those peaches contain a lot of sugar. Sugar is not good for dogs or humans. In smaller quantities, sugar provides us with a surge of energy that will help us to go about our business.
When we get too much sugar, though, this can overwhelm our systems and cause nerve damage along with other issues. That is even more of a problem for dogs, as dogs are much smaller and have naturally lower-sugar diets in the wild.
When a dog gets too much sugar, it can build up in the blood stream and cause nerve damage. That nerve damage can be extremely problematic and cause tingling in the limbs and even loss of movement or pain.
What’s more, is that when the nerve damage gets severe, it may lead to loss of vision. If a dog should eat too much sugar all in one go, this overdose can potentially lead to heart failure.
The fiber found in peaches can also be an issue. That’s because dogs wouldn’t have eaten all that much fiber in the wild and if they consume too much of it, it can cause digestion issues. The most common result of a dog indulging in too much fiber is that they have temporary diarrhea. While this isn’t necessarily a serious risk, it is still unpleasant and may lead to dehydration—which can be a big problem.
For all these reasons, it’s extremely important not to give a dog chocolate! While peaches aren’t quite as bad, they are still a risk. So you need to keep this as a small and occasional treat or a useful way to get your dog to eat their dinner/ swallow their medicine.
